Could Cannabidiol Show Potential for Wound Healing?

By Seth B October 05, 2021

Wounds are unpleasant, but we all have to deal with them at one time or another, whether it's an accidental cut in the kitchen, a scraped knee while playing basketball, or a bruise picked up from a clumsy moment at work or with friends. More severe wounds can create serious problems for us, by causing pain, making it difficult to move around, and even keeping us from accomplishing our daily responsibilities.

However, what if there were a supplement we could take each day that would help us resist the minor aches and pains we sometimes get? What if that same supplement could contribute to the healing process on a molecular level? Cannabidiol (CBD) is a supplement gaining attention for many reasons, including the potential to address everyday scrapes and bumps.

Before talking about CBD and the healing process, it's important to know what CBD is not. Although CBD is derived from hemp, it does not contain THC in significant amounts, as we've talked about in other blog posts. In fact, CBD has very little in common with the countless drugs that pharmaceutical giants have marketed to treat aches, sanitize cuts, and minimize serious pain. Those drugs can have their uses for certain cases, but they also can saddle us with many drawbacks. Over-the-counter pain medications do not heal wounds faster, and exceeding the recommended dosages may damage the liver. Powerful painkillers, sleeping pills, and muscle relaxants can treat the symptoms of wounds or injuries, but not the causes, which may be why up to one-third of people prescribed certain kinds of powerful drugs report risks that outweigh any benefits. Those risks can include dependence on the medication, decreased benefits from taking the same drug over time, lethargy, and other unwanted side effects.

As a supplement, CBD is intended to be taken daily, and make consistent contributions to our lives as a whole. The more we find out about CBD through the research world, the more information exists to show just how extraordinary this compound is. New investigations show possibilities for work with autoimmune diseases where the body overreacts to wounds and harmless stimuli and triggering painful conditions that often require powerful drugs to treat. If you find yourself in these situations, maybe you could benefit from a general supplement such as CBD.

CBD is still in the very early stages of study when it comes to examining its possibilities for wound treatment. Currently, we know CBD has the potential to downregulate, or decrease, some of the proteins and messenger chemicals that are involved in the inflammation reaction. Inflammation is necessary to help our bodies fight off disease and expel foreign organisms. When inflammation occurs in an uncontrolled way, such as after acute injuries that cause wounds, inflammation causes more harm than it helps. CBD, however, reduced the secondary damage and improved healing when given to animals that had head injuries, possibly due to reducing inflammation.

Other research conducted with CBD treatments for wounds found that the inflammation reduction also decreased the damage to bones that would usually occur after sudden mouth injuries. Some researchers like David Fernandez-Lopez have proposed that brain injury, which can involve both physical wounds and extensive functional changes, may be alleviated with timely treatment of CBD, because of how CBD may reduce cell toxicity and lesions in animals, and also promote cell repair. The same regulatory processes may be important in healing most types of acute wounds, including sudden ischemia and cuts that open the skin.

A new study published in August of 2018 determined that CBD showed promise in reducing inflammation in the early phase of the wound healing process.

The different packages of CBD that are available, especially topicals, vapes, and oils, deliver convenient and precise determinations of supplemental amounts. This allows you to find the right level of supplement to meet your needs, including the desire to feel your best each day.
